  • An amazingly beautiful place. Went here on a date, best date ever. Absolutely loved it here. Waterfalls are absolutely wonderful. Would love to bring my little girl. She would love it!!
  • Amazing place. The park manager Mark is a great guy. However, the LSU teens that come here are real snubs and don't clean up after themselves. They treat the park like crap. A word to them: stop being snootish little pricks and start treating the park with respect. If you can't be nice and clean up after yourself then stay home. One thing they clearly don't teach at LSU is respect.
  • Been several times over the years. Beautiful scenery, but it gets busier every year.
  • A beautiful place to go hiking. Those hills are pretty steep though. I do have a good time when I do go. :) ;) ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡
  • Love love love. I take the trail to the first waterfall and the just walk in the stream. The water is cool and fed by springs. This is the perfect summer outing.
